Alexa rank depends not only on the traffic, but several other factors too. One of them is quality backlinks, which is not at all related to traffic.

From  talks with different Gurus, the Google traffic analyzer is more accurate. Years ago however Alexa was the standard.

This is a ranking system set by alexa.com (a subsidiary of amazon.com) that basically audits and makes public the frequency of visits on various Web sites. The algorithm according to which Alexa traffic ranking is calculated, is simple. It is based on the amount of traffic recorded from users that have the Alexa toolbar installed over a period of three months. This traffic is based on such parameters as reach and page views.

Alexa ranking depends upon the alexa toolbar installed in the browser. It is inaccurate because it doesn't collect the traffic data from the non-alexa toolbar users.

I agree, you can’t give the Alexa ranking too much thought. I’ve often thought of the major flaw, every visitor needs to have the Toolbar installed. The majority of web users won’t, with the “tech” crowd being the exception.
